FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Pender commissioner's DWI case delayed again


CHARLOTTE, NC (WWAY) -- More than a year after he was arrested for his third DWI charge, a Pender County Commissioner's court case was delayed again today.

As WWAY was first to report in August, Matthews Police in Mecklenburg County pulled David Williams over in December 2010 after they spotted "a suspicious vehicle stopped in the middle of" US 74. The report says Williams's blood alcohol level was 0.15.

A court date in September was pushed back to December. That hearing was delayed until today, when a judge granted a motion to suppress the breathalyzer results. The case has been continued until a Finding of Facts hearing March 26, according to Charles Keller, a spokesman for Mecklenburg County Court.

Fellow Pender County Commissioners did not know about the arrest until WWAY uncovered the information last summer.

According to criminal records, Williams was convicted twice for DWI: once in 1990 and again in 1994. Williams also has a history of speeding and other traffic violations. Williams has refused to comment on the case.
